The threading may be out of the channels. Rethread. Put in a fresh needle. Make sure you are using an embroidery needle and a new one for each new project. You can't use YLI bobbin thread. It stinks. If all this doesn't help, take it in to be checked These work great when there is not thread stuck in the bobbin case and it is threaded properly. If all is well, it will go like gangbusters.

Husqvarna 3610 doesn't pick up lower thread


Hi, Check to see if needle is bent. If the needle is bent it will not work well and soon it will break.
Replace the needle. Also lube the moving parts on your machine. (fine oil) sold in most sewing centers.

Thread breaks when embroidering


Try changing threads. If you're not using embroidery thread specifically, the "treatments" they use on different threads can really cause problems.

Free motion quilting Viking Designer 1


I had the same dissatisfaction when I switched from the 1+ to the Designer 1. After some trials I am now happy. You need the springy free motion foot. Part #413 03 76-45. You take off the white shank and screw it on with the metal bar over the needle hook. In the set menu turn the SensorQ on, the free motion on, select stitch 1 from menu V and drop the feed dogs. It also makes a big difference to use the straight stitch throat plate which just has a small hole for the needle to go through. One other hint is that I often have to reduce my needle tension 3 or 4 steps. Hope it works for you.

Viking 1+--Thread breaks during embroidery


If the thread will not run through the tension mech on 0 then it is probably stuck on a tight setting. It can be a bit complicated but the tension mech can be stripped/cleaned/free'd up. Another possible cause is the path of the thread from the spool to the needle any deviation from the correct path increases the tension at the needle. If you do not know the history of the machine I would suggest a thorough clean and service.

DESIGNER SE breaking needles


Sounds like the needle to hook gap needs to be adjusted, i.e. the needle is striking the hook when in the lower position. As the needle becomes dull, it probably bends slightly causing more contact and hence breaking. I would try another dealer if you think that might help., You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.
